U know, just a month back, my kid tasted this for the first time. Donot know how i missed my favy lunchbox filler !! Whenever i prepare this, it will come out with a great flavourful smell. Last week, i tried this by adding a green peas, to add more flavour. Asusual, the taste was great but to my suprise, my 2 year old kid, enjoyed it thoroughly with Onion & Cucumber raita. Here comes my doubt, As my kid is a VERY BAD EATER, she enjoyed this dish !! Till now, i didnt get answer what made her to gobble it ? whether it is the tasty ghee rice or Raitha ??!! :( Need to have a debate with my kid :P With this doubtful note, enjoy this Ghee rice recipe friends....
